|Got a sleep in today – Hotel Kolin too far from Canakkale to head out, especially in the rain! Not due to be picked up until 1.15 pm so we had a long overdue rest. Took the time to update the journal and read a book. Got picked up and collected the rest of the group then headed to Troy. Replica of the Trojan Horse at the site which we had a play on, then wandered through the ruins of Troy. Homers Iliad regarding Troy and Paris/Helen is a purported myth. The ruins of 11 Trojan cities have been revealed although the actual site is neglected due to lack of money! It was a very quick visit as it was pouring with rain! After a few hours we finally got in the bus and headed back to Istanbul. Stayed at the Barcelo Saray (again which is ok) Bus trip back to Istanbul was uneventful.
